During the month of January, there has been a variety of sewing, from mending and alteration work along with new items now being offered for sale.
I was pleased that I was able to spend the first few weeks of the New Year working on this web-site, and while I still have much to do, it is showing progress. I do have a variety of pages that you can view from the side bar, which I hope makes it easier for you to find what you are looking for.
One can view the various sewing I have done from custom work, to various alterations and mending, to home decor and more.
It is exciting to have a place to showcase many of the items that I create, many from new fabrics, while also gaining more ground on creating from fibers already in the cycle of life, into new items. My most recent being a purse I made from a suede jacket, that had seen better days, but still had some lovely genuine suede left to work with.
More items were added to the site for purchase, which can be found in the “For Sale” area as well as the “New Life Textile” pages. Currently there are no links to directly purchase, but an email can quickly remedy that for you.
A new item that I have been working on are some cloth pads for women, whether for menstruation or for bladder leakage. They are being made in a variety of sizes, using 100% cotton fabrics and thread. Since the OTC (Over-the-counter) retail products are made with various chemicals and perfumes, that are not really appropriate for our tender areas, causing irritation and sometimes infection for some women, this has proven to be a blessing. Yes, they are more costly than purchasing disposables, but they can last up to 5 years if taken care of properly. There are directions provided in how to Care for you pads that you can always reference to.
More of these pads will be created over the next couple of weeks. Currently I will be working on some purple and blue options, then I will return to some pink, yellow, etc. The sizes will range from panty liners to heavy-duty pads to protect those with heavy cycles and those with incontinent issues whether due to nature, job situations, etc.) We might not enjoy the inconvenience of what mother nature provides, but it is nice to wear, in comfort, something pretty.
Be sure to check out my Facebook page to keep up with work that is being done, new additions to the site, and more
